I just sealed the box with my entries. Did both of them. Stuck my neck
out with 4 bean 5 roast espresso mostly blended without pulling a
shot, only getting to cup all the roasts and see how they were cool.

going safe but then I wouldn't learn anything . And a difference with
home roasting is not having to live on"crowd pleaser" coffees!
